In this video, learn the prerequisites needed for this course.
- [Instructor] So what you should know in order to be successful with this course. First and foremost, it's not about what you know, but what you should have. If you want to work or tag along with what I'm doing, I would recommend you have an access to an Azure subscription. If you don't have access to an Azure subscription, you can get a free one at Azure.com and Microsoft will give you $200 to spend on Azure services, which will be more than enough to actually do the exercises and the things that I'm doing in here. The second thing that you should be familiar with is the Portal. We are not going to talk about the Portal in too much detail, so I'm assuming a certain familiarity from your side with Azure Portal. Another thing is PowerShell. I'm not going to delve into details about the language and how it works, I'm just going to show you the commands that you need to create either a virtual machine or create different services in Azure. And last but not least, you need to have some familiarity with the Command line. As I'm going to use Command line quite a lot in this course, some familiarity with that would be welcome. One other thing that I would recommend, if you want to do the services as I'm doing it, you should install Visual Studio Code. Visual Studio Code is a very lightweight program, it's free to download from Microsoft, and it helps you a lot with authoring PowerShell files and authoring Azure CLI files and authoring arm templates and so on. So that's my recommendation.
